KINGSTON TRIO: The Stewart Years (10-CD Deluxe Box Set)

10-CD Box (LP-Format) mit 108-seitigem gebundenem Buch, 286 Einzeltitel, Spieldauer 711:25 Minuten.

1958 erklomm das Kingston Trio mit seinem millionenfach verkauften Tom Dooley zum ersten Mal die Pop-Charts, doch bald konnten sie mehrere vergoldete Nr.1 Alben auf ihrem Erfolgskonto verbuchen. Der vorliegenden Sammlung ging eine 10-CD Box mit dem Titel 'The Kingston Trio: The Guard Years' voraus, in der die drei Jahre bei Capitol Records porträtiert wurden. Wie der Titel 'The Kingston Trio: The Stewart Years' schon vermuten lässt, widmet sich diese Box den Aufnahmen der Gruppe aus dem Zeitraum von August 1961 bis September 1966, als sie aus den ursprünglichen Mitgliedern Nick Reynolds und
Bob Shane sowie John Stewart, der Dave Guard im Sommer 1961 ersetzte, bestand.

John Stewart war ein Fan und hatte auch schon einige Kompositionen beigesteuert. Als Dave Guard sich verabschiedete, baten ihn Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane und der Manager Frank Werber für die Position vorzuspielen. Er stellte sich als perfekter Ersatzmann für Dave Guard heraus und trug im harmonischen Zusammenspiel mit Nick Reynolds und Bob Shane dazu bei, dass das Kingston Trio als die erfolgreichsten Vertreter der populär-kommerziellen Folkmusik in die Geschichte eingingen.

Die vorliegende 10-CD Box (die zweite in einer dreiteiligen Anthologie) stellt zum ersten Mal alle Aufnahmen des Kingston Trios für Capitol und Decca in der Besetzung Nick Reynolds/Bob Shane/
John Stewart
zusammen. Enthalten sind sowohl die altbekannten Hits Greenback Dollar, Reverend Mr. Black, Desert Pete, und Where Have All The Flowers Gone?, als auch viele alternative Versionen und bislang unveröffentlichte Lieder (dazu gehört auch ihr 1962 für den Grammy nominiertes Album 'Something Special' in der Originalversion, ohne die Orchesterbegleitung). Weiterhin enthalten sind ihr Konzert in der Hollywood Bowl im Jahr 1962, wie auch ihr 'Abschiedskonzert' mit dem Titel 'Once Upon A Time' aus dem Jahr 1966.

Das 108-seitige, gebundene Buch bietet seltene Fotografien aus den Privatarchiven des Kingston Trios. Die Geschichte der Gruppe wird von Bill Bush nachgezeichnet, Ben Blake liefert begleitende Anmerkungen zu den einzelnen Songs. Eine vollständige Diskografie rundet das Werk ab.

Kingston Trio

Gegründet wurde das folkloristisch ausgerichtete Trio 1957 in San Francisco.
Mitglieder: Nick Reynolds (geb. am 27. 7. 1933 in Kalifornien), Bob Shane (geb. am 1. 2. 1934 auf Hawaii) und Dave Guard (geb. am 19. 10. 1934 in San Francisco, gestorben am 22. 3. 1991).

Zwischen 1958 und 1963 kamen 17 Singles in die US-Hitlisten, angeführt von der Guard-Komposition 'Tom Dooley', die ein internationaler Evergreen wurde und auf dem Folksong “Tom Dula' aus dem 19. Jahrhundert basiert. Als Guard 1961 das Trio verlassen hatte (er gründete die Whiskeyhill Singers), kam als Ersatz John Stewart (geb. am 5. 9. 1939) aus San Diego hinzu.

Nach dem Ende des Kingston Trios (1967) wiederbelebte Shane die Gruppe sofort mit den neuen Mitgliedern George Grove und Roger Gamble ('New Kingston Trio'). Ende der 80er Jahre war eine Kingston-Trio-Version mit Shane, Grove und Bob Haworth unterwegs. John Stewart erlangte als Solist Bedeutung auf l der Singer- - Songwriter-Szene. Für das Sprechen des deutschen Intros zu 'Tom Dooley' wurde der englische BBC- Discjockey Allen Grace verpflichtet, der ansonsten nichts mit dem Kingston Trio zu tun hatte.

KINGSTON TRIO :
THE GUARD YEARS

DAVE GUARD

Donald David Guard was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on October 19, 1934. He attended Honolulu's Punahou School, where he met Bob Shane; they both graduated in 1952. Dave's father, a civil engineer and U.S. Army Reserve colonel, encouraged Dave to pursue a career in business. Subsequently, he enrolled in Stanford University where he graduated with a B.A. in Economics in 1956. While attending Stanford's Graduate School of Business, he formed the Kingston Trio with Bob Shane and Nick Reynolds, and performed with the group until 1961. Guard then formed The Whiskeyhill Singers with former Trio bassist David 'Buck' Wheat, Cyrus Faryar and Judy Henske. In 1962, he moved his family to Australia where he taught guitar and hosted his own 'Dave's Place' television program. He would continue to write and teach music, authoring several books including, 'Coulour Guitar' (a method of teaching utilizing color in place of musical notation), and 'Deirdre' and 'Hale-Mano' (books on Celtic and Hawaiian mythology). He was also active in recording Gabby Pahinui, the legendary Hawaiian slack guitarist, producing 'Pure Gabby' in 1979. He passed away on March 22, 1991 in Rollinsford, New Hampshire of lymphatic cancer. He was 57.

 

 

BOB SHANE

Robert Castle Shane (Schoen) was born in Hilo, Hawaii on February 1, 1934. He attended the Punahou School in Honolulu with fellow Trio member, Dave Guard. After graduation in 1952, he came to the mainland to study at Menlo Park (California) Junior College, and later at Menlo School of Business Administration. It was there that he met Nick Reynolds, and formed what would later become the Kingston Trio with Nick and Dave (who was attending nearby Stanford University). Bob returned to the islands in 1956 to work in his father's wholesale toy and sporting goods business. He began working in his off-hours at several Honolulu night spots, including the Pearl City Tavern, doing vocal impersonations (he was billed as 'Hawaii's Elvis Presley'). Bob soon returned to the San Francisco area, joining Reynolds and Guard full time as the Kingston Trio. Over the Trio's 40-year history, Bob Shane has remained the Trio's lead singer and constant guiding member. He resides in Phoenix, Arizona and tours extensively with the Kingston Trio.

 

 

NICK REYNOLDS

Nicholas Wells Reynolds was born in San Diego, California on July 27, 1933. The son of a U.S. Navy Captain, Nick grew up in nearby Coronado, California where he graduated from high school in 1951. Planning a career in hotel management, he attended San Diego State College and the University of Arizona. He transferred to Menlo Business College where he met Bob Shane and Dave Guard (from Stanford). He graduated 1957 with a B.S. in Business Administration. Nick would remain with the Kingston Trio until 1967. After a short period of designing race cars, he moved to Southern, Oregon where he was a rancher, theater owner and antique owner for 17 years. He would occasionally perform as a duo with John Stewart with whom he recorded an album, 'Revenge Of The Budgie', in the early 80s. Nick rejoined the Kingston Trio in 1986, and today again plays to sold out audiences worldwide with Bob Shane and George Grove. Nick and his wife Leslie live in Coronado, California.

 

 

KINGSTON TRIO : THE GUARD YEARS

Seemingly overnight, The Kingston Trio became a national obsession racking up million-sellers such as MTA, Tijuana Jail, and Worried Man,  and placing five albums concurrently on the 'Billboard' Top Ten chart. They were on the cover of 'Life' magazine, guests on every major TV variety show, and the inspiration for hundreds of folk groups forming in college dorms all over the country.

This was the start of the 'folk boom,' a musical and merchandising mania that totally revitalized a sagging record and acoustic guitar manufacturing industry. Among the biggest beneficiaries of the craze was the C. F. Martin Company, whose guitars were closely associated with The Kingston Trio (the Trio played no other brand, and were always pictured with Martins on their album covers). At one time, Martin found itself three years behind in back orders, unable to keep up with the overwhelming demand. Dick Boak, Martin's Artist Relations Manager, comments:

"The Kingston Trio started it all -- they were ones who really built the acoustic guitar industry and initiated the folk music revival. Today there are legions of acoustic players all over the world who know about Martin guitars just because of The Kingston Trio. To commemorate their 40th Anniversary, we’re finally returning the favor -- we’ve just issued a limited edition of 40 sets of Kingston Trio instruments with special inlays and signed labels. They more than deserve the recognition.”

With the demand for guitars (and banjos) came an insatiable demand for folk performers. Every major record label had its own version of The Kingston Trio, plus or minus a few members: Peter, Paul & Mary, The Brothers Four, The Chad Mitchell Trio, The Limelighters, The Journeymen, Bud & Travis, The Serendipity Singers, The New Christy Minstrels, the list goes on forever.

While the early Trio consciously steered clear of social commentary, their repertoire was always highly intelligent, filled with thought-provoking lyrics and memorable melodies. Theirs was never background music; you had to listen to it and be moved by it, which at that time in American popular music was no small accomplish-ment. As the folk movement gathered momentum, folk performers used their music as a forum for social change, ushering in the folk protest era of the early '60s. None of it would've happened without The Kingston Trio. It can be legitimately argued that without a Bob Shane there never would have been a Bob Dylan. But the controversy started early.

"There was always that ‘folkier than thou’ attitude to deal with," says Nick Reynolds, “and it was pure hypocritical nonsense. No matter what musical genre you work in, you deal with subjectivity -- other people’s perceptions of what’s valid and what’s not. If we had been comedians or pop crooners, we would’ve been judged on a purely entertainment basis, which is really all we ever wanted. What made us novel at first, and controversial later, was that we chose to be entertainers in an idiom that people grew to regard as serious. I say 'grew' because before The Kingston Trio popularized folk music, I don’t think most Americans really gave a damn about their musical heritage. Sure, the Weavers had a lot to do with popularizing folk music; they were 'our'  biggest influence. But nobody turned America on to folk music like we did. The Kingston Trio made folk music a do-it-yourself situation; it brought people together, got them singing together and playing guitars together. We gave them a medium to communicate with each other; a very simple, basic and beautiful way to share ideas that anybody could master with three chords. That 'medium' is what really set the stage for the 60’s 'protest movement,' and I think the Trio deserves the credit for at least that much. The problem is that people started confusing the medium with the message.”

The original Kingston Trio was formed in and around Palo Alto, California, by Dave Guard, a Stanford University graduate student and his two friends, Bob Shane and Nick Reynolds, from nearby Menlo College. Guard and Shane both were born in Hawaii, and had been singing and playing together since their high school days at the Punahou School in Honolulu. Reynolds, from Coronado, California, was the son of a Navy career officer and had attended San Diego State and the University of Arizona.

"I showed up at Menlo not knowing a soul," recalls Reynolds, "and the first day I walk into this accounting class and there's this guy sleeping in the back of the room during the lecture. So I said to myself, anybody that's got the guts to do that I've got to get to know. It turned out to be Bobby Shane, and we immediately went out and became really tight pals; I don't think we showed up for school for about two weeks afterward."

This mutual attraction of kindred spirits, which included drinking, carousing, and other forms of hilarity, was further strengthened by an interest in singing, more as a way of improving their social life than furthering any professional aspirations. "Bobby had this tenor guitar and I had some bongos," Reynolds recalls. "We'd show up at these local spots and fraternity parties and get right in there. I was sort of his driver, you know, just hanging out, fascinated by this magnetic person. Bobby's a charmer; he could play three chords on a tenor guitar and attract more people than the London Symphony. Later on, he said 'I've got to introduce you to this guy I know over at Stanford,' which was Dave, and we just sort of fell together. I kinda mooched my way into that thing. Bobby and Dave had been playing together a long time in Hawaii, and people would want to hire us to play Hawaiian music at their luaus. They taught me some real Hawaiian songs, the third part, which was real easy considering I'd never been to Hawaii. After a while, we started working like two nights a week at these little beer gardens, one of which had hired me as a bartender."

While this grouping of Guard, Shane, and Reynolds was indeed to become The Kingston Trio, the group went through several personnel and name changes in the process. Shortly after introducing Reynolds to Guard, Bob Shane returned to Hawaii to work in his father's wholesale sporting goods and toy firm while pursuing a solo singing career as 'Hawaii's Elvis Presley.' Reynolds and Guard kept at it, adding Joe Gannon (on bass) and Barbara Bogue, billing themselves as 'Dave Guard And The Calypsonians.'

Must have for Kingston Trio fans

Well done remastering to CD. The book is excellent and puts in to perspective the events and atmosphere at the time these recordings were made. I only question the logic of not putting the album cuts in their original order.
